CC-E backpack program to help feed the needy

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

One of 56 applicants, the Clay Central-Everly Future Farmers of America is one of eight FFA chapters in the state to earn the "Planting a Seed" grant. Advisor Betsy Schoelerman recently received $1,500. FFA will use the money to begin a backpack program for the district, packing food for elementary students from food-insecure families to eat over the weekend. In addition, the FFA hopes to begin a district-wide garden in the spring, ideally raising food that could be distributed back to the community through the backpack program.
